There are tons of conspiracy theories surrounding Disney and Disney World in general. How many have you heard?
Most of these theories or legends revolve around ghosts or paranormal activity in general. Everything from people being frightened to death from the original haunted mansion to “no one can die in Disney World.”
Former employees always seem to have the best stories regarding this place and it seems with good reason. Could it really be as Evil as they make it out to be? Are these all just bull or could they actually be pieces to the puzzle of why and how Disney is one of the most magical places on Earth?
10 Disney related theories and legends:
1. No One Can Die In Disney World.
Disney is able to work around people dying on their property because their death has not been declared yet. That has to be done by a doctor and often happens at an emergency room. Though according to several conspiracy theories people who work ar Disney are forced to try and get injured or dead people off their property before the declaration of death is made. However, if you take the time to google deaths at Disney World the list is long. For more on this click here.
2. What Happens After The Park Closes?
I am sure you have wondered a time or two what goes on when the lights are out and all the guests have made their way out. Could this story be true?
When we got to the break room, I realized I had left my bag where we were working. Dammit! There was no way I was spending $8.00 on a coke and stupid bear claw from one of Disney’s rip off vending machines. I told the guys I was going to run back and get my bag.
So, off I went. I was hurrying along because we only get a half hour for lunch and if we take even a minute longer to get back to our work location, there is hell to pay. And you all know how fast a half hour flies by unless you’re working. Trying to make a good time, I must have made a wrong turn in all that blackness. My stupid flashlight was in my tool bag…of course. I was attempting to feel my way around the track when I saw some light coming up ahead of me.
They looked like they could be a set of emergency lights but they were quite dim and flickering. Who cares? Any port in a storm, right? I slowly made my way towards them and began to hear voices but I couldn’t make out any words. There was no one in the attraction other than us…or so we were told. Oh my God! After all the stories I was told…was I finally going to have one of my own?
3. Why I Will Never Go Back to Disney World!
Sure, most people adore those costume characters but who are they really? This story had me really shook up.
It’s about 9 PM as I type this in the hotel. My wife is sitting on the bed with our little girl, Angelina, and the skies are lit up with fireworks. I hope to god everything is alright. They told me to document the events of the day, it’s better than sitting around, they said. So I’m going to tell you what happened, NoSleep. Until I get the call.
4. No Girls Allowed!
Originally Disney had a policy stating that women were not allowed to work in the animation studio except for in the Ink and Paint department. This one seems to be true, however, it is no longer the case and says more about the time period than Disney or female animators in general. Now there were exceptions to this policy when it was still being used but to see a rejection letter sent to Mary Forn back in 1938 please
5. Abandoned Disney Park, What Did They Find?
Have you ever heard of River Country?
Disney’s river country, an older Disney water park, has been abandoned since 2001. I’ve seen SO many stories about the park, but none of them has done the mystery of it justice. Back in the early 80’s, the brain eating ameba killed an 11-year-old boy, but as many knows, that had nothing to do with its closing. The park conflicted with new laws that had been passed. But River Country was much different than the other parks.
When you go into the main WDW parks, you get this Disney “feeling”. You truly feel like you’re in a magical place. But with River Country, you get a different feeling, an odd feeling, like you’re an outsider. I remember standing in front of the dilapidated lake in the middle of the park, and I just felt like something wanted me to get out. I really wish I would have.
6. He Worked High-Level Security But There Were Things Even He Couldn’t Cover Up…
There are rumors of an elite security group working at Disney World to cover up any and all incidents at the park but this story is a bit too intense for even me.
I got to the ride and got to the house and back in the front door to the Masonic Room, and locked the front door as I entered. I inserted the Core Key into the lock on the wooden door, removed the core, and inserted the Zone 1 core into the lock. Now my Master Key will open the door, and boy did it. The door glided open, it was heavy and steel on the other side of the wood face. There was a velvet red carpeted staircase leading down to some kind of utilidor, but we are in EPCOT, what the hell. There is one small utilidor in EPCOT, but it doesn’t go this deep. I descended the stairs and walked down the red-carpeted hallway to these two double doors. Behind these doors was my answer and the truth as to what happened to these kids. Through these doors was the darkest side of Disney, a side of Disney that even I couldn’t believe. Would Walt be in favor of this? Or is this one of Eisner’s little idea of making more money off his guests.
Behind these doors was an empty dimly lit room with a small circular platform in the center. The carpet was the same lush red velvet carpet from the hallway. There were 6 leather armchairs around the circular platform, all with telephones and card readers on the table next to the chair. Inside I knew what was going on, I knew what was happening here. This is one thing I will not cover up for the Disney Corp.
7. Pirates Of The Caribean Ride, Real Skeletons?
8. Could Some Of Those Animatronic People Be Real?
Before I tell you my story, I have to tell you that I haven’t worked at Disney for 6 months. I got the gig through their college program. Getting paid to work at the happiest place on earth? Great right?? NOPE! I could write No sleep stories just about my day to day work there, but it wasn’t all bad, the novelty of working there surprisingly never wore off. In mid-August, I was starting to legitimately enjoy it! That was until I got the complaint.
“Yeah what is up with the additions? It scared the s— out of my kids.”
I sort of looked at this woman with a “what the hell are you talking about?” face.
“We haven’t done any additions to the Pirates of the Carribean in a while. When was the last time you came here?”
“We were just here in December. I’m just saying that the fish robot got way too close to the boat.”
Holy s—, for anybody who has been to Disney world, should know that there is NO fish animatronic on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. I cashed the woman out (I was working at the shop outside the ride), called my supervisor over the walkie talkie, and told her what she told me.
9. A Disney Mascot Followed Me Home!?
When I was young it was every kid dream to go to Disneyland. The advertisements ragged on constantly between Saturday morning cartoons, and the summer holidays were coming up, so you know every kid was asking their parents to take them, and you know I was one of them. My parents always kept quiet about it, never giving a straight answer. I was close to giving up on the dream of going to the magic kingdom until they pulled me aside before the end of the school term.
“Adam,” they said.
“We’ve been hearing great things from your teachers this year, and your grades have improved so much. We’re very proud of you, so we saved some money aside and we’re taking you to Disneyland.”
How should a kid react? Thank their parents politely and profusely? Express their love joyously? Well being 8, and having a low emotional constitution I simply broke down and cried. It was the happiest moment ever that I can remember, and will probably never be topped. How can you ever top such wholehearted innocent childhood glee?
10. What Lies Beneath Disney World?
I don’t know how much time I have left, so I want to get this story out there before they find me. You can only hide from a corporation with the resources that Disney has for so long. They’re closing in on me as we speak.
Let’s start at the beginning, a year ago when my wife and I were planning on taking our two daughters to Disney World. Frankly, Disney isn’t exactly my thing. I’d much rather be riding rollercoasters that fling you around at 90mph than little boats that take you on a scenic ride through a cartoon I’ve been forced to watch about 10,000 times. To be honest, the most interesting thing about Disney World (aside from partaking in Beer Around the World) to me were the underground tunnels that, as a lot of people know, the park staff and characters use to move around without being seen by guests. They actually have hidden entrances all over the park. So when I saw the option to tour those tunnels, $75 seemed like a pretty small price to pay to get me out of a few hours of meeting princesses. I booked the tour. My wife and daughters weren’t interested, and the girls were too young anyway, so I was the only one taking this tour. I was expecting a few pleasant hours of child free bliss in the air-conditioned tunnels and maybe some interesting information that might make the park itself a little more entertaining for me. If I had only known what awaited me in those tunnels I never would have signed up for that tour. I would never have taken my family to that godforsaken park at all.
Now whether you believe in the paranormal or any sort of wickedness surrounding Disney, in general, is up to you. How could there be so many stories and legends surrounding this place if none of them are true?
